    Abstract:
    The functioning of truth in a history text does not depend only on its episte-mological conditions, but also on an ethical relation between the historian and the reader. Paul Ricoeur proposed that such ethical relation is based upon a tacit reading pact, a contract in which the author ensures his reader that his narra-tive is “true”. On the other hand, Michel de Certeau has worked both with the internal functioning of the machinery that produces truth (the historiographical operation) and with the active character of the reading process. As such, I pro-pose that one should engage with this ethical relationship between author and reader, and that such engagement can benefit from a reflection on the categories of trust and expectation.
